Title: First flight May 16,2020
Post by: Frank v B on May 16, 2020, 05:34:45 pm
Alex and the Ryerson boys brought their new drone for a test flight.  The hover mode went fine for the first flight.
During the second flight they tried transitioning from vertical flight to horizontal flight at about 40 foot altitude.  During the switchover, something went horribly wrong, the nose dipped and could not pull out.  It pancaked into the ground.

Stats
- 19 kg total weight
- 5 motors (4 for vertical flight, 1 pusher for horizontal flight).
- Five 120 amp esc's.
- two 6S 16,000 mah in series.
